Self-Employment…The start #1

DreamerGet a notebook and start writing your reality dream list, not just a wish dream list but an I want dream list. Then take an honest look at your present financial statement and decide if you can save twenty($20.) dollars per week, if more better, but no less than twenty($20.) dollars.

Facebook, Google +, Twitter, and other social media sites or groups that you are a member in will play a role in the birth and life of your self-employment journey. The question you need to ask yourself and be honest with yourself is your membership in any of these sites or groups entertainment or interaction, if they are entertainment you need to start the shift to interaction by starting discussions and filtering reactions to build your relation with your site or group members.

Self-employment

Passion. What is your passion, what is it that you enjoy doing and can never get tired of reinventing it. People do not enjoy being cheated or given less than expected and that is the same for all of us, so you cannot offer less than your very best, while listing your dreams and saving the twenty($20.) dollars, on a fresh page of your notebook fine tune your passion and determine what is needed to make it your self-employment tool.

The time is now, as a group we need to think as a platform of expression where we can work and develop together a number of connected services that benefit those that use them and us as we offer them. If you have an interest in being part of a community with a goal towards successful sustainable self-employment, join me at Google+ and we can start building our Google+ circle where we offer suggestions on where we start as we  interact, develop and move ahead.

The Big Mind of Self…Needs to Listen and Step Back !

hHad a great time earlier at a Crowd Funding / CO-OP luncheon, we talked about the direction of finance and the great new thing called Crowd Funding. The sad truth is that crowd funding is not new, the name may be but not the concept, and what was truly surprising is that everyone thought they had all the answers  to solving the tool use of social media to generate capital attraction. I see social media as a phone call, you answer only if you first know who is calling and second if you wish to talk with the caller, the belief that a great video and a constant blitz of updates is the path to follow is not my belief. I still believe that the human reaching out along with a descriptive expression in video and printed booklet tied into limited email updates is still the way to go, this presently works for us and has been 100 % successful simply because it makes for a fully informed decision. Many find this to be time-consuming and dislike the closed circle launch that is used as we only focus on those that are aware of the project and not the use of a full public platform, we focus on our client list along with the people you know and build from there, I am not in favour of reaching out to the public unless the project offers a product in exchange for participating. Crowd Funding and Crowd Sourcing  has and always will be with us, and was not created by social media. I still believe in the power people and a story my mother told me of a farmer and how he received the help of the village to water his crops in exchange for a share in his crops, which I think was Crowd Sourcing.
